Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
Nicole Scherzinger finds it “easier” performing without the Pussycat Dolls.
The 32-year-old singer shot to fame as the lead singer of the all-singing and dancing troupe, alongside Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts and Melody Thornton.
The band split earlier this year so they could focus on solo projects, and Nicole’s career has been going from strength-to-strength ever since.
The stunning singer admits being on stage is less nerve-wracking now she’s flying solo, as she used to compare herself to the other Pussycat Dolls members and feel insecure.
“Are you kidding me? It’s easier. Before I had the four most beautiful girls behind me so I was more self-conscious,” she said.
Despite finding solo performances easier, Nicole does miss the energy she and her former bandmates had together. That doesn’t mean to say she isn’t thrilled about the direction her career has been taking.
“I miss the girls, especially on stage because we had such a good energy. But I love music and I’m grateful to be able to continue to do it and I’m loving what I’m doing as a solo artist,” she beamed. “It’s pop, up-tempo dance, rock n roll, soul and funk.”
